The as-yet unpainted Goblins (including the 'Very Tall Goblins' who crew the warmachines), and some Orc archers, ready to get their spray of black...
And the very same having been sprayed:
I'm beginning to think that it may even be possible to complete this! I wrote a little list of the units I need to build and paint which looks like this, as of Monday evening (20th May - 17 days to go):
G1: 19 Goblin spearmen (paint); 1 Goblin musician (build, paint) - all undercoated; need to build drum for musician
|This will be the musician for the spearmen - need to make his drum|
G2: 5 wolves and 5 Wolfriders with spears and shields; (find/build and paint all) - 3 wolves and 2 boars found (wolves already undercoated, boars painted), 5 riders (basecoated)
|This lot will be five wolf-riders (more or less), honest|
G3: banner-bearer and musician for Rabble (build and paint both) - banner bearer built (need to source banner) and painted; drummer undercoated, need to build drum
|Musician and banner-bearer for the Goblin Rabble|
G4: 2 Wizards (build and paint); 1 hero ('Biggit') with bow (build and paint); banner bearer ('Flaggit') (build and paint) - Wizard 1 sourced and substantially painted, need to add staff-top and accessories; need to source/build Wizard 2; Biggit built and undercoated; banner bearer sourced, need to paint
|Chap on left is a hero ('Biggit') with bow, chap on right is destined to be a wizard (his staff needs something on the end)|
G5: 2 bolthrowers, 4 crew - undercoated
O1: 14 'Chaos' Orcs (need new shields and painting) - basecoated, have spare shields if necessary
|The Red Skull Orcs get some basecoating at least|
O2: 14 'Yellow Moon' Orcs (shields and painting); musician (build and paint); banner-bearer (build and paint)- shields sorted, minis substantially basecoated; musician basecoated, need to build drum or gong; banner-bearer, basecoated, banner-pole built, need to make banner
|Yellow Moon Orcs - getting there...|
O3: 'Krudger' (Orc hero), build and paint - complete, I had a nearly-complete mini for this lying around so I stuck an arm on and repainted his shield
Somehow, I forgot to take his picture...
O4: 10 archers (Orc scouts or 'Sniff'), paint - undercoated
|2 'Sniff'' - Orc Scouts with bows: the rest of the unit is undercoted|
Feeling good about this, beginning to see the light at the end of the (Goblin) tunnel...
